IThe present investigation entitled “Effect of Dates of Sowing on Yield and Quality of Seeds in Garden Cress (Lepidium sativum L.)” was carried out at Medicinal and Aromatic Plant Research Station, Sri Konda Laxman Telangana State Horticultural University, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad during the year of 2015-2016. Among the different 8 dates of sowing (15th September, 30th September, 15th October, 30th October, 15th November, 30th November, 15th December and 30th December) with 3 replication. The plant height (86.34 cm), number of primary branches (21.20), Days to 50% flowering (22.60), Dry matter accumulation plant-1 (8.80 g) in garden cress was recorded maximum in 30th October sowing compared to early and late sowing dates. During 60 DAS LAI (0.52), 60 DAS to harvest stage CGR (0.568 g m-2 day-1) and 30 DAS -60 DAS stage RGR (0.083 g g-1day-1) recorded maximum values with 30th October sowing.

Key words: Garden cress, Dates of sowing, Growth and Physiological parameter.
